Richard Silverstein: David Yerushalmi, Jew as White Supremacist

Richard Silverstein

Richard Silverstein’s excellent blog post on the paradox known as David Yerushalmi.


(Richard Silverstein)

I know. It sounds too preposterous to be true. But read on.

Earlier today, Fadi of Kabobfest linked in a comment here to a Muslim Link post by Tariq Nelson about David Yerushalmi’s “infiltration” of a Virginia mosque for the purposes of unmasking its alleged jihadi agenda. Since I know Yerushalmi based on his strident Israeli nationalist views I was having a hard time crediting Nelson’s claims that he espoused “white supremacist” views.

But Larry Cohler Esses has set me straight and proven that a Jew can indeed by a white supremacist as proven by this Yerushalmi essay in Conservative Voice:

While our constitutional republic was specifically designed to insulate our national leaders from the masses, democracy has seeped up through the cracks and corroded everything we once deemed sacred about our political order. Prior to the Civil War, the electorate, essentially white Christian men, had access to local government. It was here, where men shared an intimacy born of family ties, shared religious beliefs, and common cultural signposts, that representative government was meant to touch our daily lives. With the social and cultural revolution which followed the emancipation, man’s relationship to political order was radically nationalized and democratized. Today, there is simply no basis to resist “democracy” and the “open society”.

Note Yerushalmi’s distinction between national and local government. White men were supposed to enjoy democracy only in New England style town meetings with their neighbors, while the affairs of state were to be handled by national leaders free from the messy pressures of the unwashed “masses.” And you’ll notice who Yerushalmi blames for the deterioration in our body politic, Abe Lincoln, the Great Emancipator. That’s right, letting the darkies get the vote was the worst thing those “white Christian men” ever let happen to the Republic.

Fadi also turned me on to some eye-popping Yerushalmi legislative proposals regarding the Arab-American “menace:”

WHEREAS Islam requires all Muslims to actively and passively support the replacement of America’s constitutional republic with a political system based upon Shari’a.

Whereas, adherence to Islam as a Muslim is prima facie evidence of an act in support of the overthrow of the US Government through the abrogation, destruction, or violation of the US Constitution and the imposition of Shari’a on the American People.

HEREFORE, IT IS RESOLVED THAT: It shall be a felony punishable by 20 years in prison to knowingly act in furtherance of, or to support the, adherence to Shari’a.

The Congress of the United States of America shall declare the US at war with the Muslim Nation.

If you spend any time at a Yerushalmi site you feel like you’ve traveled through the Looking Glass where every notion about this country you ever cherished becomes reviled and every notion you ever detested about this country is lauded. It is definitely “through a glass, darkly.”

I’ve wondered whether Yerushalmi’s background as a Ukrainian Jewish immigrant could figure in this. [UPDATE: Yerushalmi is NOT an immigrant but born in the U.S. His ancestors were born in the Ukraine. My errror was due to the misunderstanding of a comment my informant made about Yerushalmi’s background.] Observers of the Israeli political scene note that many Russian immigrants entering politics are either outright anti-democratic or so far right as to be virtually anti-democratic. Avigdor Lieberman is one example and Natan Sharansky is not far behind. Something in the Communist system has so warped these people’s minds toward democracy that they view it as a debased system, a trick designed to harm their interests. Of course, Russia is also known for its right-wing racialist politics and neo-Nazi activism. Witness Vladimir Zhirinovsky.

    Rabbi Moshe Ben-Hod, or should I say Rabbi Musa Bin-Hud, either way your comments seem fascist, and a disgrace to the prestigious title of “rabbi”, and to the Jewish people as a whole. Hate is evil and fatal, and you and your people should know that better than anyboby. So for the love of God and His beloved messanger Moshe(a.k.a Musa) don’t let your flock astray.

  • More power to Mr. Yerushalmi. However, I would love to see him living in Israel, as we need more people like him.
    As far as Richard Silverstein goes, he is a self-hating Jew, 100% American and 0% Jewish. I

    There are nazis in every faith.

    You will find Iraqi Arabs attacking Black Iraqis over their skin colour, they label them “Slaves” etc.

    You will find Bengalis in Pakistan Karachi being called Black faces and immigrants etc.

    You will find Jews who will follow a similar racist nazi model as the german nazis did,

    Nazism is in every society and country, its education that will help us destroy such a vile ignorant ideology.

    Not long ago, a Jewish Rabbi, stated that Jewish women should never accept the Sperm donations from Gentile, as their children would be born evil and inferior.

    You will find loons in every society!

    “Whereas, adherence to Islam as a Muslim is prima facie evidence of an act in support of the overthrow of the US Government…”

    They said the same thing about the Catholics in the 19th century, and the same thing about the Jews in the 20th century. Hitler really was right about repeating a lie enough times, makes it true (in the masses perception.)

    “Whereas, adherence to Islam as a Muslim is prima facie evidence of an act in support of the overthrow of the US Government…”

    What the hell is that? Guilt by faith?

  • TheDemiprist

    All Supremacists should be condemned, Jewish or not.

  • Beautiful Muslim Doll

    I assumed that people would know what i meant, but when i said American extremists, i meant the American Jewish Taliban zealots like Geller, Schlussul, joey Kaufman, and other Kahanists,

  • Beautiful Muslim Doll

    I normally love Richard Silverstein’s pieces, and the above is a good one, but i disagree with his summation of Russian right wing extremists and their link to communism as being the reason for their extremism. Russians in Europe do not suffer from this disease.

    whilst it’s true that Russia does have it’s set of extremists, as does Israel, there is a reason that is so, vis a vis his comment regarding Israeli extremists being Russian, and that is in Russia they don’t have the freedom to do that, but in the USA they do, hence they do not need to go anywhere.

    If American extremists moved to Israel (Geller, Schlussul, David Horowitz) they’d all outnumber the Russian ones.

    and David Yerushalmi is the lawyer that is representing Geller in her case brought about by Omar Tarazi.

    Thank you Richard, though i disagree with some parts, good work as usual.

  • Mosizzle

    Is anyone surprised that he is Geller’s lawyer?

  • mindy1

    A Jew sounding like a Nazi-and yet, he does not see the irony 🙁 😯

  • Rocky Lore

    How can a Jewish person be a white supremacist or Neo-Nazi? Last I checked, they loathe Jews.
